2021 has been an incredible year for skincare trends. TikTok has been a driving force behind the popularity of DIY beauty tricks (skin icing, anyone?) and game-changing hacks, including how to remove blackheads and treat dark under-eye circles.

Perhaps you've decided to ditch makeup entirely and want to focus on your skin's health, or maybe you've realized your groaning bathroom cabinet is filled with products you could really do without.
